I have a Town & Country Limited. I have a board specially made to go across the rear, using fork mounts, just as you describe, if I need to haul two. And yes, you must remove the front wheel and faring.
However, when I'm just out for the day, I only take one bike with me. Using the method that I described nothing needs to be removed from the bike. It is much more convenient.
If I'm also taking the trike, Bacchetta, or a friends bike, along then I used the method you described.
Ah... I get the difference. I rarely go for a ride without my better (smarter, prettier) half:
I have the fork mounts on chunks of Trex decking material. I can pull these out, attach the fork, and slide the bike in easily. These chunks then get pinned to a cross-beam of the same material (to keep the bikes from rocking) and then the bikes are tied with nylon ratcheting ties. Probably overkill, but I bet I could roll the van over without damaging the bikes. Gotta save the bikes.
